During the last twenty days of September, I attended twenty Seattle area theater productions. I didn't go to one each day, but some days I'd attend a matinee and then an evening show. It was a wonderful whirlwind that continues in October. Here are a few of what I consider to be highlights that are still playing.

All politics are local, all days are Earth's. So is it silly that I celebrate finding a company that recycles what I used to toss? Or that I've figured out "starters" for making yogurt sans a heap of "number 5 plastic " yogurt containers? No!
